This post is not going to be my final thoughts on the live stream, just my initial response for now. My official thoughts will come tomorrow in a much longer post. Now that that’s out of the way, lets get started with the gushing.
OH MY GOD I LOVE THE LOOK OF THE PLAYSTATION 5. The futuristic design is a perfect leap forward in consoles design and is a great contrast to the true future of gaming. What I mean by that is the new console generations is supposed to be the biggest leap since the PS3 era. The two consoles also through me for a loop. One with a disc drive, the other without.
Now, the games. First off we have the new Spiderman game, Spiderman Miles Morales. This is time around we play as Miles Morales during Christmas in New York. Having the game set in the winter gives off some Batman Arkham Origins vibes, in a good way. Next they showed a new Horizon game that looks amazing. Also a new Resident evil that looks to depart the zombie aesthetic the game usually has. They showed off a bunch more games but these three are what stuck out to me.
All in all, this event was miles better the than Microsoft one we had a while back. That conference mainly showed indie titles and almost no gameplay. Playstations event showed off tons of gameplay, trailers, and even their console and accessory. I will have my full thoughts in a much larger post tomorrow.
Let me know what your thoughts are on this event, the trailers, and the new console design. I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this!
